Art in the Open Philadelphia

Art in the Open (AiO) is a citywide event that celebrates artists, their inspirations for creating art, and their relationships with the urban environment. Inspired by, but re-framing, the tradition of painting en plein air, a juried selection of artists working in a variety of media will create art outside, on-site over the three-day period of May 18-20, 2012 along the banks of the tidal Schuylkill River - from the historic Fairmont Park Water Works and the Philadelphia Museum of Art, south to landmark Bartram's Garden.
